About Garrett Jackson

Garrett Jackson is a shamanic practitioner and teacher. He is passionate about teaching the shamanic path of direct revelation, helping people to make their own firsthand connections with the spiritual realms so that they may bring guidance and healing to themselves and others.


Following a initiatory experience in 2014 at the age of 17, Garrett began learning how to work with the helping and compassionate spirits to bring their guidance to others. He began giving readings to people across the globe and exploring different spiritual practices. He began teaching spiritual classes in 2016. In this same year, he also began his formal study of cross-cultural shamanism and shamanic healing.


A graduate of Sandra Ingerman's Two-Year Teacher Training in Shamanic Journeying, Healing, and Medicine for the Earth (2018-2020), Garrett teaches workshops on shamanism, shamanic journeying and healing, Ingerman's work on transforming personal and environmental pollution, and much more.  


Garrett has a wealth of experience conducting both one-on-one and group trainings and message circles. He has done several interviews on the practice of shamanism, and brings kindness, passion, knowledge, respect, and humor into his workshops and speaking engagements. 

Garrett currently leads online shamanic workshops, circles, and webinars, and offers remote divination and healing work. He is an assistant to Sandra Ingerman on the Facebook group for her nine-week online course, The Dark Night of the Soul as a Portal to the Shaman's Light. He and Sandra created a bonus video dialogue for this course entitled "Sandra Talks With New Shamanic Teacher From a Younger Generation." He served as faculty assistant to Radleigh Valentine during his September 2019 workshop at Kripalu.

Garrett is also passionate about the importance of science and reducing the stigma around mental illness. He is certified in Mental Health First Aid through Mental Health First Aid USA, and is currently completing a BA in psychology from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh.

He is listed on shamanicteachers.com, a global alliance of shamanic and Medicine for the Earth teachers who are dedicated to teaching shamanic skills around the world.

Garrett lives in Washington, D.C. with his partner. In his spare time, he enjoys time with friends over coffee, watching comedic television, studying psychology and shamanism, and trying to appear as if he can cook.
